TECH: "best" way to organize directory of conlangs

From:Rick Harrison <rick@...>

I want to establish/instigate a directory of all known conlangs. Someplace
where I can see if the name I'm about to give my project has already been
used... or, if I suddenly remember Vling and get a nostalgic urge to find
its documentation, get a link to it. Just a brief description with links for
each language. Preferably each description would be written in English and
Esperanto so as not to exclude nonanglophones.

The question is, should I do this as a static webpage, similar to what
Richard Kennaway used to do, or a wiki? And if a wiki, should I host it on a
domain that I control (thus possibly incurring a lot of bandwidth expense),
or use a free/affordable wiki hosting service? Wikis give me the
heebie-jeebies because they can easily become dominated by their most
aggressive/obsessive users, but maybe in this situation I have to consider
that option.
